Build the

The core agenda of this project is to build an open ecosystem for all the stakeholders.

Girl isolated
PhoneShaala is a toll-free number that students can call even from landlines or basic feature phones. This means PhoneShaala can be used even without any smartphone, internet or expensive technology.
  • A student calls and selects their preferred language medium (at present English, Hindi, Marathi & we plan to expand), their class (1 to 8 under RTE Act 2009) and a subject of choice (Maths, Science, Environmental Studies, Social Studies, English Language, Hindi Language, Life Skills).
  • A pre-recorded audio lesson begins playing. These lessons have been specially curated by a team of experienced educators and are created by volunteers (EduCreators) from across the country.
  • Lessons are refreshed every week, giving students 1 week to catch up on the lessons.
  • Teachers from across the country are sharing PhoneShaala with their students who don’t have access to the internet so their students can still continue learning during the lockdown PhoneShaala also aims to be a respite from trauma due to the rising child abuse during this lockdown.
  • Feedback from participating teachers suggests PhoneShaala will continue benefiting the following segments even after the lockdown is lifted.
